Chevrolet Bolt EV MotorWeek Best of the Year

We are excited to announce that the Chevrolet Bolt EV was awarded the coveted prize of 2017 Best Car of the Year by MotorWeek at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

The Bolt EV allows you to go from Point A to Point B and back again . . . and again. MotorWeek notes the 60-kWH battery pack of the Bolt EV for putting out 200-horsepower and 266 lb-ft. of torque.


A natural head-turner, the Bolt EV has a crossover design with sculpted proportions and eye-catching details. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats and up to 56.6 cubic-feet of cargo space, providing you with the flexibility to transport larger items whenever you need.

Navigate your music, phone contacts, and more on the interactive, standard 10.2-inch tablet-like display on the dash. Each Bolt EV comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.


Ensuring your safety on the road is not something that Chevrolet takes lightly. The Bolt EV features the latest in vehicle safety technologies to keep you and your passengers safe.


Pushing boundaries, setting benchmarks, while keeping it affordable; that’s what made the Chevrolet Bolt EV our staff’s unanimous choice as our 2017 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Best of the Year. –

Next Level Design: Chevrolet Redline Special Edition

Making it’s public debut at the Chicago Auto Show and available in nine Chevrolet cars, trucks, and crossovers, the Redline is the broadest cross-portfolio special edition ever offered by Chevrolet.

“. . . The SEMA (hosted in Las Vegas) show has proven to be a great way to identify customization trends in the industry, and quickly apply those trends to our most popular Chevrolet models. Based on the strong interest Redline attracted at the show, we believe they will be very popular with customers looking for standout cars, trucks, and crossovers.” – Brian Sweeney, U.S. Vice President of Chevrolet

Each Chevrolet comes standard with black wheels featuring red hash marks, black nameplates, blacked-out grilles, and black Chevy bowties. From there, each Chevrolet vehicle on the Redline features tailored to the specific preferences of each customer.

Sweeney notes that special edition lineups have always been popular amongst Chevrolet customers and dealers, and is expecting the Redline Special Edition to be no different. 

Silverado Redlines are currently available through Chevrolet dealerships.

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Camaro

Camaro wasn’t built in a generation. Each innovation has been the starting point for the next. Every milestone a green light for another. Generation Six is a culmination of everything before it. The fittest arrived, and this is its journey. – Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary site


It’s hard to believe that the Chevrolet Camaro is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year! First designed and manufactured under the code-name Panther, Chevrolet initially released the 1967 Camaro model as a competitor against the Ford Mustang. Taking on the Mustang, the 1967 model Camaro achieved 220,906 sales within it’s first year! In fact, when asked the meaning of the name Camaro, it is reported that many Chevrolet said “it was a small, vicious animal that ate Mustangs.”

Over the generations, the Chevrolet Camaro has become a staple in the homes of sports car fanatics and Chevrolet lovers alike. While there have been distinct changes since the sixties, the Chevrolet Camaro has gotten better with age and has become the definition of performance and legendary.

Celebrate the Camaro by taking a look back at where we came from and taking the opportunity to see where we are headed. Trust us, we’re not stopping at legendary.


During our Big Tent Event, you could drive home the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was as low as $24,885 or lease from $229 per month. Offers end August 31, 2016.

Cool Air & Maximum Performance: 2017 Silverado Air Intake System

Do you use your Silverado for high-pressure situations at work? Do you like to maintain the masculine performance of your Silverado? A new standard feature for the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is the all-new patented air intake system. After undergoing extensive testing, built upon the most challenging driving conditions, the air intake system ensures the capable performance of the Silverado no matter the situation.


How does the air intake system work? Recognized for the signature dramatic hood scoop, the all-new intake system provides 60%  of air to the diesel engine from a space at the front of the hood. Closer to the temperature outside, and much cooler than the air under the hood, the intake system helps the Silverado HD perform better under pressure and in harsh weather conditions. Especially in situations where the temperature of the engine can rise extremely fast.

“The 2017 Silverado HD was engineered to provide maximum utility for our customers in even the most extreme situations . . . While developing this all-new induction system, we considered our customers towing a maximum-weight trailer through the Eisenhower Tunnel on a hot, rainy summer day.” – Eric Stanczak, Chief Engineer, Silverado HD


Expected to arrive in showrooms later in the fall of 2016, the Silverado HD air intake system will become your greatest asset when it comes to tough and high pressure working conditions.
